Here Are Some Additional Fitness & Weight Loss Tips For You
This topic has become a personal hobby and passion of mine over the past few years of my adult life. When I was about 25 years old, I began to toy with the idea of physical fitness and general health.
My goal was never to look a certain way or conform to a certain societal standard of being attractive. Rather, I wanted to be the healthiest, best version of myself that I could be. Growing up, I was a band nerd who played video games.
Although I am still those things, I have found ways to be much more active and healthier in my adult life. I can honestly say that it was the best decision I have ever made as it improved my physical health, mental health, and general self-esteem.
When I first started working out, it would literally involve doing something active once or twice a month at most. At my current age of 31, I now consistently work out about 3 to 4 days per week and there is no looking back. Here are some tips I’ve learned along the way.
I think this is the most important lesson I’ve learned during my fitness journey. It seems to me that, as humans, we want quick results and overnight success. We all make those New Year’s resolutions, do them for a week, then lose motivation and give up. I think the reason behind this is that we try to go from 0 to 60 right away, rather than going from 0 to 1, then 1 to 2, 2 to 3, etc.
We buy the gym membership but stop going after January because we went from literally never working out to trying to go to the gym every day. What I have found is that making small lifestyle changes is the best way to actually build those long term good habits. Going from eating fast food every day to suddenly eating salads will probably result in mixed, short term results at best.
However, drinking one bottle of water per day, and changing nothing else, is a doable goal. Do that for a month. Then drink two bottles of water per day for another month (and so on). After a few months, you are actually drinking a lot more water than before, and probably less pop, alcohol, energy drinks, etc. The same can be done with exercise.
Before getting a gym membership, take a walk once a week for a month or two. Then take a walk two times per week (and so on). After a few months, you are walking a lot more than before. Although this is tough with our busy lives and human nature, I have found that this is a slow and steady path to success.
One of the best classes I have ever taken in college was a nutrition course. I learned so much about what a healthy diet actually is, “calorie empty” vs. “nutrient dense” foods, and how to be skeptical about dietary claims.
Throughout my journey with exercise, I have used personal trainers to learn how to safely warm up/cool down, workout, use gym equipment, etc. As a former band nerd who never stepped foot in a gym, the intimidation of not knowing what to do at the gym kept me away for many years.
Finding good personal trainers that I connected with helped me gain confidence at the gym while knowing how to actually work out and make progress. Although personal training can be expensive, in my opinion, it was money well spent and an investment in myself.
I continue to use personal training as a way to keep myself accountable and expose myself to exercises that I would never think to do on my own. Prior to personal training, I never would have dared to try to bench press, use a TRX, or dead lift.
Do What You Like
We live in a great time for fitness. Most areas contain several franchise gyms as well as unique grassroots gyms. These gyms can be 24 hour laid back atmospheres or intense environments of grunting people throwing weights on the floor.
There is yoga, spin classes, swimming classes, CrossFit, and even pole dancing classes! I recommend trying a variety of fitness avenues and find out what you enjoy.
Capitalize on what motivates you. For me, I have found that variety is the best way to keep me engaged. I like to do different things throughout the week to stay active and stay interested. Cardio and strength training are my favorite types of exercise so most of my workouts consist of a combination of these movements.
Personally, I don’t respond to “hardcore” classes where trainers yell at you. My motivation goes out the window in that environment! In short, do what works for you and fits into your schedule.
Track Your Progress on Paper
My final tip is to track your progress on paper. Years ago when I first moved out of the family home, my older brother told me to make a budget on paper. He flippantly said “the paper doesn’t lie” and this has stuck with me years later.
I have found the same when it comes to fitness, diet, and well-being. In my brain, there are times I tell myself that I am working out “a lot”. Then I actually track it on paper and realize that my perception wasn’t quite accurate.
I track my workouts and fitness goals in my work calendar, which I can’t live without, and this helps keep me accountable. I don’t use this as a source of self-judgment or a way to beat up on myself.
Rather, it is a tool to take an honest look at how I am meeting my goals, if I need a break, or if it’s time to reevaluate. I tend to get lazy with my personal goals sometimes so this tip helps remind me to keep going!
It is really important for men to make a good effort to gain good health, mental peace and find yourself again in your life.
Thanks for reading and I hope these tips can really help you and others. These are just some avenues that have been a part of my personal fitness journey.
I am not a bodybuilder or fitness model. However, I can honestly say that I am in the best shape of my life and physically healthier than my immediate inner circle. I believe I have found a positive hobby and use of my free time that has enhanced many aspects of my life. If I can do it, literally anyone can!
Life without fitness or good health is like hell. So, guys try to follow the above things, and you will be fine for sure.
